Well done, fantastic start.
I am still looking for a job so will take me a while to get started.
I would like to save £1500 by the end of the year - current savings are a meagre £19.55, but its something! I am paid weekly but my job is only guaranteed until March, so I'm going to aim for £25 per week (No commuting costs as I live round the corner and can take own food) and anything left on a Thursday will be put in as well.

So all in all my aim is in line with this thread. Aim is to put money into various funds and reduce mortgage by making overpayments. Savings are kid uni fund; main savings account; Christmas savings account will continue.
Today I managed to put my wage rise and some savings from jar in house into Christmas fund; money into kid's uni fund; overpay mortgage by £25; put savings into main fund. Any O/T I get will also be split amongst these.
Feeling more in control of finances that any time in my working life (almost 25 years). This website is great and the forum rocks.

Thank you very much and good luck everyone.
I've joined the save 12k in 2014 thread as I'm not sure if the OP is still maintaining this one
